We Take Your Fight With Cancer Personally

Werner Resource Center

Your connection to medical research and

consumer health information

A host of questions goes hand-in-hand with every cancer diagnosis. One of those is where to find accurate, up-to-date information you can trust.

The Werner Resource Center is a free service available to patients, their families and anyone looking for accurate, easy-to-understand information on all cancer-related topics. We believe knowledge about cancer helps patients and their loved ones as they navigate through the diagnosis, treatment and recovery period. 

Our always-ready-to-help staff can conduct complimentary and personalized research on any cancer-related topic. Or you can use one of the center's computer stations to access specialized medical databases and do your own research.


Preliminary Questions:

  • Do you have questions about your cancer diagnosis or treatment?
  • Would you like to know what information and resources are available to you?
  • Are you interested in learning more about the latest cancer treatments? 

Consider our Werner Library and Resource Center if you answered “yes” to one or more of the questions above. 


Our Resources:

Our resources provide information on specific cancers and their treatments, cancer prevention, coping and inspirational resources, complementary therapies, nutrition, care-giving, children’s needs and end-of-life care. Our professional, friendly staff is available to answer your questions and provide individualized research to help you make important healthcare decisions.
